Be sure and stop by my Last show of the Season DUN DUN DUN DUUUUUN!! I will be in the Historical Sleepy Hollow Cemetery October 25th right behind Washington Irving next to the Receiving Vault. I met so many Fangtastic people last year that I had to come back! So many people requesting “will you be back?””r you going back?” YES!!! I spoke with the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery’s staff and they would like to have me back too! You can wander the cemetery on our own OR you can take a TOUR!! Which I highly Recommend. I will be setting up very early 8AM-5PM. The cemetery is a city in it self and once you step in you seriously feel like you are in another world. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! My Vendor fee will be going to the Historical Society which helps keep this cemetery beautiful. I will also be creating a special painting that will be raffled off. Proceeds of that raffle will go to the Historical Society as well!! Be sure and stop by and Say Hello. I promise you will have a wonderful Experience.
